About the event
Rachel Carson has been in Jan Bolwell’s life since she was nine years old. Her conservationist grandmother introduced her to Carson’s book Silent Spring, that exposed the dangers of the chemical DDT. Jan revisits this book through adult eyes, as she plays Rachel Carson in her fight for nature. Audiences find out about Rachel’s struggle to bring an important environmental issue into the light. We also are challenged to consider current ecological and environmental issues in our own backyard.
